    Should I Even Make A Trade At This Point?

    12 team yahoo h2h money league:
    C Carlos Ruiz (1st Overall C)
    C A.J Pierzynski (3rd Overall C)
    1B David Ortiz (3rd Overall 1B)
    2B Robinson Cano (1st Overall 2B)
    3B Edwin Encarnacion (3rd Overall 3B)
    3B David Freese (10th Overall 3B)
    3B Aramis Ramirez (12th Overall 3B)
    SS Starlin Castro (2nd Overall SS)
    OF Melky Cabrera (9th Overall OF)
    OF Curtis Granderson (14th Overall OF)
    OF Josh Reddick (16th Overall OF)
    OF Jason Kubel (21st Overall OF)
    OF Dexter Fowler (30th Overall OF)

    Basically what I am looking to do is to downgrade my Offense a little, and boost up my pitching. I am looking to grab Steals, because that is the only Offensive category I have even lost basically all year. But I am also looking for another big name starting pitcher.

    SP Cole Hamels (10th Overall SP)
    SP Johnny Cueto (11th Overall SP)
    SP David Price (13th Overall SP)
    SP Chris Capuano (17th Overall SP)
    SP Wade Miley (21st Overall SP)
    SP Scott Diamond (36th Overall SP)
    DL Brandon McCarthy (37th Overall SP)
    RP Jim Johnson (5th Overall RP)
    RP Ernesto Frieri (7th Overall RP)
    RP Houston Street (12th Overall RP)
    RP Rafael Soriano (14th Overall RP)

    But do I even need another starting pitcher? I have hands down the best pitching and hitting in this league. I am currently 4.5 games up, I am pretty sure that is going to do nothing but go up from here. What do you think try and make a move or just stick with this team from this point on?

    • That is an enviable roster. Up and down, you have good depth, and except for SS have multiposition coverage for injuries or days off. With the starters you have, you should reach the innings limit of your league easily. The only over-achievers you have are at the catcher position, but Ruiz has always had good second halfs. I would not feel compelled to make a move.
